Phone number spoofing occurs when someone disguises their real phone number by hiding behind someone else’s phone number, which displays on the phone screen, to make calls. These calls are most likely scam calls. Scammers spoof phone numbers that are recognized as local or similar to phone numbers that are used often by the victim. Never give personal information or banking information to anyone over the phone. Beware, the scammer will say anything to make the victim believe they are a legitimate legal operation.
